The rise and rise of Braxton … this name was not even on the Top 100 in 2011, so goodness knows how many places it jumped – probably far more than 57. The usual surnames turn up, with South Australia being the first state to welcome Mason into its Top 10. Harry and Henry keep doing really well, which makes me wonder if Harrison is so popular because it can be shortened to Harry? Irish names seem particularly popular in South Australia, with even old favourites like Ryan rising 20 places.
